The Liar’s Wife by Samantha Hayes @samhayes @bookouture #bookreview

Happy Wednesday book lovers!

Another book I am excited to share with you today! This was a fantastically dark atmospheric Red that kept me riveted! Thank you so much to Noelle for my invitation to the tour and Samantha Hayes for her delicious words!🖤


When Ella wakes up in hospital following a hit and run incident, she is scared and confused. Close to tears, her eyes fall on a get-well-soon card on the window sill and the nurse reassures her that her loving husband will be back soon.

But Ella has never been married…

Absolutely love twisty and unputdownable psychological thrillers like Girl on the Train, The Wife Between Us and Gone Girl? Then you will be totally hooked by this jaw-dropping novel about the dangerous secrets behind a perfect marriage.

My Thoughts

HOT DAMN!!! This was one disturbingly dark and addictive read!

This book was claustrophobic, atmospheric, and completely engrossing…. some books you read and some books you live, this was definitely the latter… I was on pins and needles throughout this book, breathing every breath and feeling every fear write along with Ella…

Ella has a secret, a secret so dark that it has her trapped in her own life… work Eat Sleep Repeat…. no social life, no friends, no romantic entanglements, but it is better than the alternative… facing her passed…. then one day she gets in a horrible accident and wakes up in the hospital and is told by the nurse that her husband will be right back… The problem? Ella doesn’t have a husband…. so who is this man? Who is this Jacob? You know he is someone from Ella’s passed, but what does he have over her? And why is she letting him play this terrifying game?

Told from both the present and the past you really get to see Ella before and after the secret that changed her life…. Ella is a very sympathetic character and the more you get to know her younger self the more you realize how much this secret event has impacted her life…. Jacob is a monster, the kind of character you love to hate! He is evil to the core and so cruel, and just when you think he can’t get any crueler he does… there is abuse in this book both emotional and physical, so if that is a trigger for you this is not the book for you…

Absolutely recommend this dark and twisted story with an ending that I definitely did not see coming…

    1. Oh I hope you get an opportunity to read it! It was really good, although it’s hard to use the word good with the book like this, LOL


  1. claustrophobic, atmospheric, and completely engrossing… I love that description. Maybe a bit too harrowing for me. Lol. But I love when readers get totally immersed in the twists and turns and ambiance. Lovely review too! 😉

    1. I think some others had a problem with the pacing as well, for me it was perfect, but that’s me!
      And yes Jacob was horrible!
